Clean sweep for Sedgefield at Boys’ U17 Qualifiers 2016

Sedgefield clean sweep in Boys’ U17 Qualifiers 2016

Sedgefield continued their title defence with an undefeated run at the Boys’ U17 Qualifiers 2016 at the Liverpool Aquatics Centre last weekend.

The Durham side – who won the U15s title in 2014 and then stepped up to take the U17 crown last season – looked unstoppable, winning all three matches in Group A to book their place in next month’s finals.

After starting the day with an 8-2 defeat by Sedgefield, 2015 runners-up City of Manchester added wins against Watford (7-0) and Chelmsford (6-5) to finish runners-up in Group A and seal the second qualification spot from the group.

City of Sheffield are the second team to take a perfect record into the final stage of the Boys’ U17 competition, winning Group B with victories over Caledonia, Cwm Draig and Bridgefield.

Winners of the Boys’ U17 Plate Trophy last year, Caledonia also continued their progress to the finals by securing the second qualification spot in Group B.

The Boys’ U17 Finals 2016 will take place at the Manchester Aquatics Centre from 23-24 April.
